What If Baby Has a Bad Reaction to a Vaccine?

If baby’s reacting to a vaccine, will I know it? What should I do?

The Bump Expert

About one in four babies has a reaction to a vaccine. Luckily, most aren’t serious -- the most common reactions are redness, pain or tenderness at the injection site, mild fever and fussiness, says Cornelia Dekker, MD. These usually go away on their own within one to three days.

A minor reaction means the vaccine is doing its job -- creating an immune response that will ultimately protect baby from infection, Dekker says. To ease pain, apply a cool wet cloth at the injection spot. If baby has a low fever, ask the pediatrician if it’s okay to give her medication, such as infant acetaminophen or ibuprofen.

Anything more serious or concerning, you should call the doctor immediately. This includes high fever (over 104 degrees) and signs of an allergic reaction such as facial swelling, hives or difficulty breathing. Chances of an allergic reaction are rare, Dekker says -- about one in a million patients -- and usually happen within hours of the vaccination.

Expert: Cornelia Dekker, MD, is director of the Stanford Health Care-Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford Vaccine Program.

Q&A: Bad reaction to vaccine?

'Sudden-infant-death-syndrome (SIDS) has been reported following administration of vaccines containing diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and pertussis vaccine. The significance of these reports is not clear. It should be borne in mind that the three primary immunizing doses of these vaccines are usually administered to infants between the age of 2 and 6 months and that approximately 85% of SIDS cases occur in the period from 1 through 6 months of age with the peak incidence at age 2 to 4 months.' While they admit that SIDS has occured after vaccination with DPT containing vaccines, they attempt to brush it off by saying that that is because the majority of SIDS cases happen in the age range when vaccines are being given. This isn't much of a defence, since it may be because of the shots that the SIDS occurs in that age group. Evidence suggests this to be the case
